Short Short (but “well” over 55 words long)

by

The Sumerians liked the number 60, and they invented clocks or something, so we measure time in 60s. But when I’m at w*rk, it’s depressing to think there’s five more hours until lunch break, so I count decimal time. 300 minutes is five hours, but it’s only three Seamus Hours. When there’s 50 minutes until dinner break, I’d rather say, “half a Seamus Hour” than “almost an hour left.”

When I’ve showered my jobs off me and crawled into bed, I’ve got five hours next to you. That’s much more than 3 Seamus hours.

[Gretchen rates this one a 6.5 and says it’s “standard Collins”, which is fair. She also thinks I need to edit the last two sentences into one sentence, which bears looking at.]
